Damn!
90 years old and she rode 1800 miles to Sturgis in 3 days at 80 mph on her Harley with her Granddaughter along side her on her own.

I think I have a new hero, and I think I will stop lamenting the fact that I didn't start riding again until I was 50..I still have plenty of years to go.

I bet she does ride cross country at 100!

If she is still riding at 100, imagine the line of bikers she's going to have following her every mile.

Yeah, she's ruining our tough guy image we worked so hard to get.:D She's a heck of a lady. I hope she makes her goal. I doubt seriously if I'll make to where she is right now. She's an inspiration.:thumbsup:

Hey Eye, there was a gal some years back that used to ride all over on a Harley with sidecar. Do you remember her? I think Milwaukee has one or more of her rigs on display. I can't remember her name. I wonder if the two ladies ever met each other.

I showed this to my granddaughter as a perfect example of what it means to have a 'zest' to enjoy life. :icon_cool:

God bless her and I hope her dreams reach fruition;)

I knew I wasn't the superior part of CREATION when about 40 years ago a young women just didn't even allow me to win a game of pool. I got like one shot---the break!

My wife can do almost everything better than I can except write her name in the snow;)

I also have always believed that women possess superior intellect to men, unless they are liberal Demoncrats:biggrin: Just Kidding---sorta-kinda.

Wow!!! She certainly has my respect.

1800 miles in 3 days at age 90. Do you think she needs to be introduced to Rollin?? Sounds like she might be up for a ride with him.

I think this is awesome I was at lunch a few weeks back and I got to speaking with a gentleman Id say that was in his early 70's who said he would love to ride but he thinks he's too old, I told him your never too old as long as you have the mental and physical ability.

I think I know who you're talking about but can't exactly recall.

I know there was a woman in the early days of the last century that rode cross country with her mother in a sidecar, but that's not who we're thinking about.

Nope. I think this one had a pink rig at one time but when I saw her she had a 82 I think. It was the dark brown and tan similar to what they had available recently. I just can't remember her name but she's been honored by Harley.
